WG Co-Chairs, Technical Support Unit (TSU) members and Lead Authors celebrating the adoption of the report
The 51st session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-51) concluded Tuesday, 24 September 2019, with the approval of the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). Although the meeting was initially scheduled to end on 23 September, delegates ended up working through the night to reach agreement on the SPM in the second Joint Session of IPCC Working Groups (WGs) I and II. The SPM was forwarded to the Panel for approval. The Panel also accepted the underlying technical report.
The SROCC SPM has three sections:
Observed changes and impacts;
Projected changes and risks; and
Implementing responses to ocean and cryosphere change.
IPCC-51 was also provided with an update on progress for the Scoping Meeting for the Synthesis Report of the Sixth Assessment Report that will meet in Singapore in October. IPCC-51 concluded at 1:39 pm.
IISD Reporting Services will provide a summary report of the meeting. Kindly return to the website on Friday, 27 September 2019, for more information.
IISD Reporting Services, through its ENB Meeting Coverage, provided daily web coverage and a summary and analysis from IPCC-51.
